Dear MDU Families, 

Today the Onalaska and Holmen School Districts announced that due to a sharp decline in cases, they will no longer require the wearing of masks in their facilities as of Monday, February 14. We have noted the same sharp decline in cases in our programs and will be following suit. The updated policy for MDU will be effective Monday, February 21 as our studio is closed for Intersessional Break next week. 

Every day that we can get where children can fully express themselves in the classroom and teachers can have full communication, including facial cues, we will celebrate! And, if there are days ahead where cases rise to a point where we have to revisit our mask policy, we will do so. 

In meantime, all other risk-mitigating factors remain in place and parents are asked to keep their children home if they do not feel well and to keep up with other healthy habits such as good hand hygiene, hydration, nutrition, and sleep. Anyone who would still like to wear a mask to class for comfort is welcome to do so and plenty of masks will still be available at the front desk.

I want to thank our faculty, families, and students for their support over the past two years. Working together, we have kept our classrooms open continuously since June of 2020 and we are working on our return to the stage for Spring Recital! Now that’s some awesome teamwork!

Thank you for your support! With appreciation,
Miss Misty

Mother's Room: New to MDU!

A lot of what I do in my work these days can be summed up this way - "Trying to help my younger self."

* I try to be the teacher I needed when I was the student.

* I try to be the leader I needed for when I was first teaching.

* I try to be the encourager I needed when I was a new wife.

* I try to be the mentor I needed when I started my business.

Today I am trying to provide the environment I needed when I was a NEW MOM - a welcoming, quiet place to nurse my babies while trying to balance work and my other kids' activities. There were simply too many times when I found myself nursing in a bathroom or my car because I felt uncomfortable or unwelcome taking care of my baby wherever I was at the time.

Introducing the Mother's Room at MDU - a beautiful room to support our employees and studio families and their little ones. Our room is open to anyone in the community, so if you are our shopping and need a place of respite to nurse your little, our door is open.

Thank you to La Crosse County for recognizing our efforts to help moms by designating MDU a "Breastfeeding Friendly Business" today.
